I joined Community Choice Pediatrics (formerly known as Lee’s Summit Physicians Group) as a “not quite charter member” in 1986 and have thoroughly enjoyed my time practicing pediatrics in Lee’s Summit for more than three decades.
Watching children and their families grow and seeing grandchildren — and perhaps even a great-grandchild or two — has been a humbling, rewarding and, at times, exhausting experience. And I would not trade it for the world!
In addition to my passion for children and education, I enjoy music, reading and travel (at least before the COVID-19 pandemic.) My biggest regret is not recording all the funny, insightful, heartwarming and surprising things patients and parents have said. (I could have been working on a New York Times bestseller all these years.)
